17/391 Church House Inn
Public house, formerly the church house. Probably late C16 in origin. Whitewashed
rendered stone rubble; thatched roof, gabled at left end, hipped at right end; slate
roof to block adjoining at the right end, which is probably the former stable; left
end stack, rear lateral stack.
Plan: Single depth plan, the main range with a kitchen at the left end with a
massive fireplace and bread oven but with a high quality moulded crossbeam: this may
be secondary and it is possible that the kitchen was originally single storey. The
centre and right end of the range is now one large room and may always have been so.
Lean-to at left end, C20 additions to the rear.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4:3 window front, the 3 windows to the converted
stable at the right. C20 front door to left of centre of main range into a C20 lobby
between the 2 rooms; 2 and 3 light C20 timber casement windows with glazing bars.
The right hand block is gabled to the front in the centre with a door at the right
and a loft loading door above. Ground floor small-pane timber sashes, 2-light
casement in gable.
Interior: The left hand room has a massive fireplace, the lintel over 2 metres from
the ground and almost the entire width of the room, with the remains of a roll
moulding, extremely large stone-lined bread oven in left hand jamb. The ceiling is
supported on one half beam with straight cut stops and one moulded cross beam. A
rounded recess adjacent to the fireplace may be a smoking chamber or possibly the
site of a newel stair. The right hand room has a C20 fireplace, possibly concealing
earlier features with some C17 re-sited panelling on the rear wall and 4 chamfered
Roof: Not inspected at time of survey but likely to be of interest.
